Jeweled droplets

Jeweled gem drops of water sparkle in Mollie's fur and on my bedspread, melting snowflakes from our evening walk.


I am slightly jealous.  The blogs I have been visiting today have been showing pictures of early spring flowers.  This while the world outside my window is turning white.  We have had rain for days, which now has changed to snow.  The trees are coated in snow.  The top line of the fence is edged in white.  Even the sky is white.  Winter has arrived and looks like it plans to stay.  It will be a while until I see spring flowers anywhere other than on others' blogs.

Do you ever think that we have a limited number of words that we are able to use?  Not a limited vocabulary, but a limited number say one billion.  Most recently, I have been using my written words to create request for grant money a new part of my expanded job as assistant director at the Eccles Community Art Center.  In doing this job - writing grant requests; I didn't seem to have the words or thoughts to share with friends in letters or on this blog.

Who Knew?

My Dark Chocolate Dove Bite wrapper suggested that I should catch a snowflake on my tongue.  Who knew that this would be so hard to accomplish this winter?
I just finished "Major Pettigrew's Last Stand"  A Novel by Helen Simonson - what a sweet love story.

Illuminated letter for Rose

White landscape with powder blue skies

After the morning snowstorm, the sun came out.  The landscape is a fresh white.  The skies powder blue with fluffy cumulus clouds.

In the late afternoon, the sun painted the mountains in golden tones.  The clouds glisten, as Mollie and I took a late afternoon walk.

Fresh Snow

After such a dry December, I awoke this morning to snow in my yard.  As it was morning, my dog Mollie politely asked to go outside.  She walked out about three feet in the inch deep snow, turned around and came back on to the back steps, requesting politely to come in.  Apparently, she doesn't like water in an form.

New Year

Mollie and I have had our morning walk, beginning this first day of 2012 as we begin everyday, enjoying the beauty around us.  My wish is that 2012 brings joy!
